Jackabee seems to have been here longer than all of us.  My racket is red as well and I just wear trainers for shoes when I play tennis.

I use Dunlop, no idea whether it is good or not, I only play 4 fun. However I need a new 1 but don't hav a lot 2 spend, has any1 got recommendations which r cheap, I can't afford a xpensive 1 since I bought my squash racket. Dunlop r gd 4 sqash though, dunno out tennis. My racket see,s ok, but it is a bit heavy 4 me, I like 2 use reaaly light rackets cos I play sqaush and that requires a light racket. Also I am not very strong.  :P
Sorry that made no sense and was kinda rubbish.
Sorry I can't help.

Well I started about a year ago, just played with my dad 4 fun. I enjoyed it so like 2 months ago I started having lessons.
I still play it 4 fun, I'm not very good but I am improving. I will never b able 2 play professionally but I wouldn't really want to, but I really like it. I don't have any friends who play it, so I can't play that often. It is really fun, but you play completely different strokes from tennis like you use your wrist a lot more, it is v muddlin. U shud try sometime!  goodjob

Yeah, I play a bit of badminton with friends, I love it. The movements for badminton are a bit like squash, but different, hard 2 explain. Apparently u r meant 2 play either badminton and squash or tennis and table tennis, but u no. It is cos of the similar arm movements. When I first tried badminton I never hit the shuttlecock, but after playing sqush, I found I had improved immensely without even playin. My grandpa when he was younger used 2 play sqash 4 his county (I think that is rite), then 4 some reason he was asked 2 play badminton 4 the county doubles or sumthin even though he had neva played and they won. Shows how alike they r! Wink
Soz if that bored u.

no worries, you didnt bore me! we play table tennis in PE and i am absolutley useless! but i think some of it is down to the fact that i find it boring!
i play badminton doubles for my school, and we are in the final three schools in plymouth. i only started playing in september! but the amount of training we done before the competition was so tiring!

Wow, u must b gd!
We don't get the hoice of badminton, squash or table tennis @ r skl, and only can play tennis in the summer. It is so unfair!
I hav no skill wat so eva in badminton, I can hit the shuttlecock and win, but not because I play stategically or use good shots, I just hit it either v hard and far or v soft. Also cos I play squash, I hav trained myself 2 sprint like hell 2 get the ball/ shuttlecock. (If u play with the ball b4 it is warmed up it doesn't bounce) I'd love 2 play more badminton, but I don't even hav a racket.  :P

i wouldn't say i was that good, but i enjoy playing it.although if i miss easy shots i swear a lot or just laugh at myself!(i know very random!)
the thing is now i have been playing doubles for a few months i find it really hard to play singles as you have got a lot more ground to cover.
we don't get to chose what sports we do until year 11, but table tennis is part of our curricular thing. we also dont get to play tennis till summer at school no  but now we have gon an astro-turf pitch we don't have to play football on the field! although it hurts more if you fall on the astro!
by the way can you play squash doubles?

I'm the same, if I miss the ball I either swear or laugh, it is the easiest reaction.
I find it harder 2 play badminton doubles (although I only eva play w/ friends) cos we always get in eachothers ways. I suppose it is different if u hav been taught!
Basically in yrs 7-9 we play football (on grass), hockey, netball, gymnastics, and dance in winter and tennis, athletics and rounders in summer. Now I'm in yr 10 I do trampolining, volleyball (havn't done yet), basketball and fitness in winter, dunno bout summer.  I wish we did badminton or squash. I wud h8 2 do table tennis though.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure u can play squash doubles, but I never hav. I think (not sure) u hav 2 wear eye protection though cos the ball can b dangerous and the court is quite squashed durin doubles.

We never played football! We played netball and hockey (years 7-9) and then badminton (10-11) in the winter as well as dance and gym etc. (plus running the mile and half round the local lake once a term) and then athletics (very rarely - much to my annoyance), rounders (constantly - dammit!!), and occassionally tennis (although we were never taught how to play....)
